The Center for Community Engagement is charged with fostering a learning community that facilitates civic engagement in our local and global communities; and that addresses societal challenges through long-term sustainable partnerships.

Our office serves as a resource and support for faculty, community partners and students engaged in service learning. The office supports the University’s mission by promoting civic engagement and service-learning initiatives in the local and global communities for mutual, positive benefit.

Our four strategic directions include:

  1. Institutionalizing the Center mission throughout the educational experience
  2. Facilitating University/Community dialogue about societal challenges
  3. Creating an optimal Center  organizational structure for all stakeholders
  4. Designing and implementing Center communication campaigns
